Coimbatore Municipal CorporationIn a bid to get rid of e-waste, the Coimbatore Municipal Corporation in Tamil Nadu has installed hundreds of bins to collect e-waste from across the city, according to the Ministry of Housing Urban Affair communique on Tuesday.

As part of the Swachh Bharat Mission, the initiative by municipal corporation of collecting e-waste in separately designed bins will ensure its recycling and can eventually be a profitable venture for the corporation.

Municipal Commissioner of Coimbatore K Vijayakarthikeyan said, “Swachh Bharat Abhiyan – a clean India initiative has been an important force to maintain cleanliness across the nation. With these bins installed to discard e-waste, we are adhering to the pathway of sustainable India.”     

Futile mobile-phone chargers, adapters, bulbs, wires, calculators, printers, and toners are different e-wastes generated from offices, industries, and households. Earlier, these used to be discarded in regular garbage bags but the civic body of Coimbatore city has now set up bins for collecting them.

While speaking on the initiatives of municipal corporation earlier, electric display boards at 30 locations across the city were installed. This displayed information on tax payment, real-time traffic, rules and regulations, pollution level, and awareness messages.  

The bins are steel structures of 4-5 feet height and width with different sections of openings from every side. These are designed to be placed at every locality of the city.
